    So DRZCharlie if I ride Day 1 of the TART this Saturday I should wear a orange vest???? Myself and a few others are riding down from Iowa on the big bikes (Tiger 800xc's) to Euerka Springs and then going to do Day 1 of the TART on Saturday, then heading north from Clinton to Rolla MO this weekend. Do you think there will be any issues? And thanks for the route unfortunitly we can't do the whole thing...maybe someday. :evil

    I think you might hit some re-routes because of deer season. There are many deer leases on this route. If you are prepared for that eventuality you will be fine. I certainly would wear orange in case anyone decides to "tiger hunt". Are you starting in Blue Eye?

    We are going to stay in Eurkea Springs and drive over to Blue Eye to start. But no worries the tiger is orange, which am not sure if thats good or bad. Will the deer leased land just be gated off? or how do you tell?

    Usually marked with signage or purple paint. Leases usually have gates but not always.

    Make sure you are prepared for re-routes if you ride this. The Paper Mill opens and closes roads all the time. Also, if you are riding in the spring the Turkey hunters will out and about.

    Spring turkey season in Arkansas is defined as when to when?
    I'm planning on riding the TART right after the Arkansas 500 in April.
